Protect Your Child Online

May 5th 2011 at 8:30 PM

Dear Parent,

Children being are approached online by people they don’t know at an alarming rate.  The majority of them are under the age of 15.  Every year the percentage of child victims from this epidemic continues to grow.  Is your child in danger of becoming a statistic?

Do you know what they’re doing when they’re online?

Any parent with a child knows that the thought of their child getting mixed up with an online predator is nothing but trouble.  Millions of children log on the internet each and every day.  It used to be that the television dominated most of their time.  Now with the internet, television is just a passing memory.

Just like adults, children use the internet to surf and communicate with their friends.  However, every day they access online is another day where they can get into something they’re not supposed to.  Some children have adult supervision the entire time they’re online; but what about the ones that don’t?  Parents that have full-time jobs or are constantly on the go don’t have that luxury.  They for the most part, have to trust their instincts and hope their child does the right thing.
